Coyotes to retire Shane Doan's No. 19 in February

  Coyotes to retire Shane Doan's No. 19 in February The Arizona Coyotes are set to pay homage to the longest-serving player in the franchise's history, as longtime captain Shane Doan will have his No. 19 raised to the rafters Feb. 24, the team announced on Wednesday. Doan's number is the first to ever be retired in Coyotes' team history, and will be honored with the Winnipeg Jets - who drafted him seventh overall in 1995 - in town for the ceremony. "I am extremely grateful to be the first Coyotes player to have his jersey retired," said Doan. "I am so proud to have played my entire career for the Coyotes because loyalty and commitment mean everything to me.

The San Francisco Giants will retire Bonds’ number 25 in a ceremony before tomorrow’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Which, given that he started his career in Pittsburgh is appropriate. Bonds, of course, wore numbers 7 and 24 as a Pirate. His father, Bobby Bonds, wore 25 for the Giants between 1968 and 1974.

Bonds will be the 12th Giants player to have his number retired, following Bill Terry (3), Mell Ott (4), Carl Hubbell (11), Monte Irvin (20), Orlando Cepeda (30), Juan Marichal (27), Willie Mays (24), Willie McCovey (44) and Gaylord Perry (36). Christy Mathewson and John McGraw received an equivalent honor, though they played and managed before jersey numbers were instituted.

The Baseball Hall of Fame and its voters continue to shun Barry Bonds , but his former team is honoring him: the Giants announced today that they will retire Bonds ’ number 25 in a ceremony in August.

Bonds hit 586 of his 762 career home runs while wearing number 25 for the Giants and won five of his seven NL MVP Awards as a Giant. While the Hall of Fame has shunned Bonds and while the Giants themselves were slow to warm back up to him in the years immediately following his retirement, the player and the club have been far closer in recent years. In any event, no player has worn 25 since he retired following the 2007 season, so it was always expected that this would happen.
